Altenew – make a wreath using leaves and flowers

Hi friends, I have one more card using mostly two stamp sets – Altenew Adore You and Perfectly Perfect stamp sets and I made a wreath this time. The leaf stamp in Perfectly Perfect set has a slight curve to it and it works really well to build a round wreath. I did use some of the open leaves from Painted Flowers stamp set to make my leaves (and wreath) fuller. But I believe we can build the whole wreath using only that one leaf image from Perfectly Perfect set.

To start with this card, I took the largest Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die and cut it out of white cardstock. On this, I used a pencil and marked out a circle keeping a very light hand. Using this as my guide, I repeated stamped the leaf image from Perfectly Perfect stamp set. In between the two leaves, I did get a little bit of a gap. To fill this in, I used an open / outline leaf image from Painted Flowers set and added my own two leaves. :-) For all of these I used Altenew Moss ink. At this point, I decided to die cut my panel one more time to make it a square panel instead of rectangle.

Next I stamped and fussy cut three flowers from Perfectly Perfect and Adore You stamp sets. I used Memento Tuxedo black ink for this and colored these images with Spectrum Noir markers.

I also stamped, fussy cut and colored a couple leaves from Perfectly Perfect.

Then I arranged my flowers and flowers inside my MISTI and stamped the sentiment “Thank You” from Adore You stamp set using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Once I was happy with the sentiment, I foam mounted my flowers and leaves as I had planned and added sequins. For this card, I felt like I went to town with my sequins. At the base of each leaf in my wreath I added two small and one large sequin to make then look like sparkly berries, and also sprinkled some of the smaller blue ones around my flowers. Mounting this panel on a top folding black square card base finished my project.
